Ca. 1864-5. Measures 7.75 x 5.5", mounted on white card paper. A sunny spring time park scene depicting five men and five women, standing and sitting, arranged in a tableau around a croquet stake, with mallet croquet balls in the foreground. Four of the men wear various forms of officer's dress, two standing in the right background clad in Hardee hats with plumes, frock coats with epaulettes, and sword belt with sash. Another sits in a chair among the women, wearing a straw boater hat with frock coat with lieutenants shoulder straps. A fourth officer stands to the left clad in a kepi & frock coat unbuttoned to the collar, with indistinct shoulder strap. The fifth gentlemen sits on the ground to right, wearing a boater and wearing civilian dress and smoking a long stemmed pipe. The five women are grouped with three of them sitting on the grass in front and two in chairs among the men. The female seated in the left rear appears to somewhat older and is possibly present in the role of chaperone. The other are girls in their late teens or early 20s. All are fashionably dressed. Image is slightly faded and exhibits foxing around the edges and the card mounting, with two small age spots and traces of water spotting in the right rear corner. Otherwise VG. An interesting grouping of young officers and ladies of 1864-65.

Note that there is a glare from the flash of our digital camera on the image.
